Cowboys and Indians Magazine has called Dave Stamey “the Charlie Russell
of Western Music.”
 Western Horseman Magazine has declared his “Vaquero
Song” to be
one of the greatest Western songs of all time.  In 2010, 2011, 2013
and 2014
True West Magazine named him Best Living Western Solo Musician.

Stamey has been a cowboy, a mule packer, a dude wrangler, and is now
one of
the most popular Western entertainers working today
.  He has been voted
seven times Entertainer of the Year, six times Male Performer of the Year
and
five times Songwriter of the Year  by the Western Music Association, and
received the
Will Rogers Award  from the Academy of Western Artists.

He’s delighted audiences in twenty three states, and finds that he prefers this
to being stomped by angry horses.

Ruth Moody is a Juno Award (Canadian GRAMMY) winning songwriter from
Winnipeg, Manitoba. Founding member of the internationally renowned, Billboard-
charting trio
The Wailin' Jennys and former lead singer of the Canadian roots band Scruj
MacDuhk (the band that would later become
The Duhks), she has performed in sold-out
venues around the world, made numerous critically-acclaimed albums, and has appeared
more than a dozen times on the national radio show
A Prairie Home Companion.

Although best known for her work with The Wailin’ Jennys, Ruth is an artist of
exceptional depth and grace in her own right. Critics have lauded her
ethereal vocals,
impressive multi-instrumentalism (she plays guitar, banjo, accordion, piano, and
bodhrán), and her talent as a
songwriter. Writing with a maturity and wisdom that belies
her age, her songs are timeless, universal, and exceptionally well-crafted, all sung with
an intimacy and honesty that is unmistakably hers.

Ruth was a finalist in the USA Songwriting Competition and was recognized by the International Songwriting Competition
for her song “One Voice,” which has gone on to be a signature song for The Wailin’ Jennys. It has been covered by
countless artists and has been performed in concert halls, churches and schools throughout the world.

Ruth released her highly-anticipated solo album
The Garden on Red House Records in the Spring of 2010. The album was
produced by Juno nominee David Travers-Smith and featured an all-star cast including neo-bluegrass band
Crooked Still,
Kevin Breit (Norah Jones, k.d. lang), Luke Doucet, and a guest appearance by The Wailin' Jennys. Travers-Smith produced
her 2nd Red House CD, released in Spring of 2013,
These Wilder Things, a much more personal and intense record. Special
guests included
Mark Knopfler and Jerry Douglas.

Ruth's touring group is known as The Ruth Moody Band, featuring Adam Dobres (electric guitar), Adrian Dolan (strings,
mandolin, accordian) and Sam Howard (bass, vocals). They tour throughout the U.S., playing a combination of concert halls,
showcase clubs and festivals. With a diamond resume and a golden future, things look sparkling indeed for Ruth and The
Ruth Moody Band.
Trouble And Woe
AUDIO:  
  • "John Hammond is not only 'America's modern country blues man,' he is 100% the 'real deal.'" ~ Paul Aaronson, Elmore
  • "He interpreted blues standards, gut-bucket boogie, country blues, and his original blues compositions about love gained and
    lost through the complex narrative of his own wayward soul…The blues are a living, breathing, and feeling thing, and
    Hammond in his fiftieth year on the road is a legendary master at live performance." ~ Blues Revue
  • "…a blues legend with a voice like Robert Johnson's and a demeanor that belies his tear-it-up might before an audience…"    
    ~ The New York Times
  • "Raw electric blues generate the album's primary thrust, riddled with cross-harp riffs, cresting organ runs, boogie piano
    breaks, stomping beats and Hammond's wonderfully weathered vocals." ~ The Washington Post, review of Push Comes To
    Shove
  • "A brilliant and prolific artist, John Hammond's reputation can only improve." ~ offBeat Magazine
  • "…like bourbon, his voice only gets more seductively potent with age." ~ Billboard, review of Ready For Love
  • The idea of having veteran bluesman John Hammond perform an album of songs written and produced by Tom Waits turns out
    to be every bit as pleasing to the ears as it appears on paper…What makes Wicked Grin such a splendidly untraditional blues
    album is spelled out in Waits' and Hammond's different approaches to ‘Murder In The Red Barn.' On 1992's Bone Machine,
    Waits bore down on the song like a man in possession of a terrible secret. When John Hammond sings it here, it's like that
    secret has been handed down for generations." ~ Rolling Stone, review of Wicked Grin
  • "…[A] tour de force by the veteran bluesman…An inspired match of artist, material and production, Wicked Grin is a Tom
    Waits album nobody thought possible and a John Hammond album nobody could have expected." ~ San Francisco Chronicle,
    review of Wicked Grin

QUOTES/REVIEWS:
  • "…a bluesman to be reckoned with." ~ Time Out New York

  • "John's sound is so compelling, complete, symmetrical and soulful with just his
    voice, guitar and harmonica, it is at first impossible to imagine improving it...
    He's a great force of nature. John sounds like a big train coming. He chops them
    all down." ~ Tom Waits

  • "John Hammond is a master... He is a virtuoso. A Conjurer... A Modernist...
    John is in a very small circle of men with a guitar and a harmonica. Jimmy
    Reed, Howlin' Wolf, Bob Dylan. The guitar is an orchestra. He's sending
    messages. Storytelling. All mystery. Protection. The language goes out through
    the night... The Big Boom. Boom the room." ~ T Bone Burnett

Founding members of the roots-rock band The Blasters, brothers Dave
and Phil Alvin
hadn't played music together since Dave left for a solo
career in 1986 -- until re-uniting nearly 30 years later.
  Since then, two
records and nearly non-stop touring together -- with Dave's band The
Guilty Ones -- have brought critical acclaim and a Grammy nomination.  

Now, for the first time, they're doing some acoustic shows -- with longtime
bandmate Chris Miller joining them on guitar.  Expect a good dose of the Blues,
some old Blasters songs, a number of Dave's songs from his long solo career and
stories and anecdotes from their lifelong musical journeys together and apart.

This will be a
VERY special evening!
